Superb, a historical benchmark for public broadcasting. Must be shared widely.
Free, independent, ethical courts are the only solution to the world’s injustices. Separation of powers is the core principle we must affirm most robustly, and unequivocally.
Ecuador is a brilliant example of what is possible, but also of the ever-present menacing threats, posed by universal covert action and imperialist ambition.
The best analogy is medical, the idea of health. A wholesome body politic is one that has a strong immune system. Successful immunity needs two key things ~ reliable signalling through unambiguous somatic feedback, and a coherent ecological response.
We have the information these days; with better gender-empowered education, we can develop the quality of those institutions we so desperately need to redress our redundant international power-relations. We can design vigorous new structures to replace the naked aggression of colonialist tyranny ~ oppression by what has so often been ‘religiously’ sanctioned corruption.
We can do this, if we allow ourselves to be willing to change; to be open to new ideas, to promote and endorse intelligent innovation; to listen, change ourselves, shed old prejudice, inform our sacred imagination and learn new laws.
